"Springtime = Poppy Time" by Karla Nolan, framed glass painting

ALERT: You are about to view art of a different nature. These are paintings on glass -- that is, painted directly onto glass with specially formulated glass paints. They are always framed for the protection of the glass. The paints often are transparent and sometimes opaque, giving a stained glass appearance under good light. They, like all fine art, should not be hung in direct sunlight. The photographs do not do them justice -- my colors are very vibrant. Close ups are available, just e-mail me for information (see below). In most instances, click on the actual image for an even larger image to view -- you'll see lots of different items such as marbelization, transparent or opaque parts of the work -- try it and see! Commissions are accepted.

Poppies painted onto glass sometimes produce challenges -- I don't want everything to look the same all of the time, so I vary the hues of oranges and reds, change up the backgrounds when I feel it is necessary, marbelize the skies. If I'm not having fun with the painting, enjoying myself as I produce the art work, I feel dissatisfied with the entire process. When making this piece of art, I had a wonderful time -- that's the most important thing to is stressful enough, making pretty things shouldn't be! No guarantees there, but that is my goal, what I strive to achieve.
